    Last week Stitch in the Ditch, this week Decorative Stitching!

    ok after posting what a disaster my stitch in the ditch was I took a lot of members' advice and used some decorative stitching on this table runner- specifically the wavy one. This was a table runner I had pieced from a thimbleberries charm pack my sister bought for me when she went to Tennessee summer. it is no longer a UFO and I am so happy! Hubby already left for work or he would have held it up so I could get a better picture of it - so sorry that is a little "wonky"!

    This looks just great! I think the decorative stitches were the way to go.

    That's lovely and I really like the wavy stitch lines.

    I don't ever do stitch in the ditch. Mine always looks sloppy, I FMQ everything and I love it.
    I like your decorative stitches, looks great.

    It is so beautiful. I also struggle at time to hit the ditch. Recently I decided to try out my stitch in the ditch foot. I am so thrilled with it. The stitches end up exactly where they are sopposed to and with no challenge at all. The foot fits up against the seams and makes a perfect stitch.
